Hadn't they already released a similar Dalek & Cyberman set previously? I'm sure I've seen them before with different packaging, steelbook versions from memory

These are a way better idea than the earlier Collections released in 2009. They are at least representative of both the incarnations of the show.

These look really nice but if someone got me The Sontaran Stratagem/The Poison Sky I'd ask for a receipt!
